A Simi Valley school administrator has been selected to join 165 top educators from around the nation at an intensive six-day conference focused on improving the quality of education.
Leslie Crunelle, the director of secondary education and curriculum in the Simi Valley Unified School District, will attend the 26th Fellows Program for School Administrators this week at Harvey Mudd College in Claremont.
The faculty will include nationally prominent educational leaders, in addition to business executives who have successfully restructured their companies, said Jon Paden, the executive vice-president for the Institute for Development of Educational Activities Inc.
Administrators selected to attend the annual conference must be nominated by past participants, Paden said. About 7,500 administrators have attended the conference since it began in 1965, he said.
"We look at how to bring about good change in education and how to reflect the best that we know about how to educate children," Paden said.
